Connect360 3.2 now streams DivX / Xvid for Mac

Connect360 -- software that allows gamers to stream video, music, and movies from their Mac to their 360 -- has been updated to accommodate the new codecs introduced in the recent Fall Update. In other words, Connect360 3.2 will allow anyone to stream DivX or Xvid right to their television. The full application will run you $20, though the update is free to existing users. We haven't tried it out ourselves, but our cantankerous controllers over at Joystiq claim that the app outperforms Microsoft's official Windows streaming. Anyone else out there care to testify?

Connect360 patches video problems

Nullriver Software just brought their Mac-friendly Connect360 up to version 3.1, which fixes some issues had with streaming video after the (Northern Hemispherical) Spring Update. According to Alex Lovett of Nullriver, there was a rounding error on a floating point number that was inadvertently causing the wrong data to be output at random intervals. Either way, it's been addressed in the update and any of you who have been having issues with video streaming should have smooth sailing. All in all, how is the new video codec support treating you?

Connect360 gets an update, works again

Apple owners rejoice, because your Connect360 is back and better than ever. If you recall, when the new Spring dashboard update rolled out Connect360 users soon found that their software didn't want to play nice anymore. But the Nullriver programmers got to work and just released Connect360 version 3.0 which is fully compatible with the Spring update. Not only does the program work again, but they've added H.264 and MPEG4 video support as well as iTunes podcast streaming. So, download Connect360 and try out the new podcast streaming feature using everyone's favorite Fancast. What? Just some shameless self promotion ...

Connect360 having hiccups with latest update

It would appear that not everything about the latest spring update is all wine and roses. Application developer Nullriver is currently having to deal with the Spring Update with Connect360, the Mac solution to as according to tipster Rob Avery, checking your video shows your music, and there is an apparent 2000 viewing list limit.

Either way, Nullriver is working on the problem and will have addressed the different nuances as soon as possible. Once everything is in place things should definitely look up for Mac users, as the addition of H.264 support is music to our ears. Apple based X3Fanboys, do you utilize Connect360?

Mac sharing tool, Connect360 hits 2 dot oh

Attention Mac using 360 owners! The outrageously good Connect360 keeps getting better: they've just released version 2.0 with some pretty significant changes. They've made it Universal so it will run natively on the new Intel Macs; it's now a preference pane instead of a standalone app, offering a much more suitable interface for the functionality; and plenty of bug fixes and performance enhancements (the entire changelog is available after the jump). Best of all, 2.0 is a free upgrade for registered users!

Connect360 allows people who like both their game systems and computers to be elegant and attractive to enjoy some of the media extending capabilities of the 360. It's limited to iTunes and iPhoto integration, while video playback is still reserved for a Windows Media Center PC... for now.

Connect360 connects your Mac to your 360

For those of you who didn't want to bother sullying your Mac OS sensibilities with the hands-on setup required for TwonkyVision's UPnP MediaServer software, you've missed out on what used to be the only way to get your music and photos from your Mac to your 360. Nullriver, makers of the excellent PSPWare, introduce Connect360, which "automatically indexes your iTunes and iPhoto libraries and shares them to your Xbox 360. You can then use the Xbox 360 Dashboard to browse and play your media, organized in the exact same way that it is on your Mac. "

Anyone manage to get it working? My wireless router is wonky if I keep the bridge on the same subnet... in other words, my 360 and G4 can't see each other.
